Qualcomm creates 100 jobs for Cork
Qualcomm has opened a new Global Technology Delivery Centre in Cork. The centre will support Qualcomm’s global operations teams creating 100 jobs opportunities for the area. Qualcomm is also in discussions with IDA Ireland on the potential establishment of a Security and Encryption R&D centre.
Attending the opening, Minister for Jobs, Enterprise & Innovation Richard Bruton said: "Driving continued employment growth in the ICT sector is at the heart of the Government’s Action Plan for Jobs, and in the 18 months since we launched that plan we have seen major progress with 3000 jobs now being created every month across the private sector. The challenge now is to build on and accelerate that trend."
Peggy Johnson, executive vice president, Qualcomm Technologies, and president, global market development, said: "Ireland’s successful track record with world-leading technology companies, availability of highly skilled, technical talent along with a pro-business environment, all played a significant part in Qualcomm’s decision to locate in Cork."
